Today I shot my first maternity session with my friends Natalie and Drew. They were such good sports with all my experimentation with angles and lighting as well as with my fumbling with the backdrop, tripping over lightstands and knocking over Natalie's drink. :)


Nat and Drew wanted some b&w photos with dramatic lighting and this case I shot with a single Nikon SB-600 snooted at 1/4 power. My D200 sported the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 and was in manual at f/5.6 and 1/250s at ISO 100.


Manray and I are off to their baby shower now, I'll upload more photos from the session later!
